J.K. Rowling Slams Trump for Snubbing Boy in a Wheelchair

J.K. Rowling has spoken out to slam President Trump after he appeared to ignore a boy in a wheelchair’s attempt to shake his hand.

While greeting a group of people on Friday (July 28), the little boy in the wheelchair held his hand in the air and Trump shook several other people’s hands, except his.

An extended cut of the video does show that Trump greeted the boy when he entered the room before his speech. The video that is going viral shows the president leaving the room after the speech.

Rowling posted the video on her Twitter account along with the Maya Angelou quote, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.”

Trump imitated a disabled reporter. Now he pretends not to see a child in a wheelchair, as though frightened he might catch his condition. This monster of narcissism values only himself and his pale reflections. The disabled, minorities, transgender people, the poor, women (unless related to him by ties of blood, and therefore his creations) are treated with contempt, because they do not resemble Trump,” Rowling wrote.

J.K. Rowling Drags Piers Morgan on Twitter for Defending Trump

People are praising J.K. Rowling after she sparred on Twitter with Piers Morgan, who was told to “f–k off” on television for defending President Trump.

The British television personality was appearing on Friday night’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher when comedian Jim Jefferies told him to “f–k off” for claiming that Trump‘s travel ban is not a “Muslim ban.”

Rowling shared the clip on Twitter and wrote, “Yes, watching Piers Morgan being told to f–k off on live TV is *exactly* as satisfying as I’d always imagined.”

Morgan replied by saying, “This is why I’ve never read a single word of Harry Potter,” and it led to her dragging him whenever he responded.

'Harry Potter & The Cursed Child' Will Be a Two Part Sequel!

The official synopsis for the upcoming stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has been released and it was revealed that the story will take place 19 years after the final book.

Here is the plot: “It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be told in two parts and both plays can be seen in one day or on consecutive nights. 30 actors will star in the production and casting will be announced at a later date.

The play will premiere in London in summer 2016 and tickets go on sale next week.

Draco Malfoy Turns 35 Today, J.K. Rowling Confirms!

There is a big birthday to celebrate today – Harry Potter character Draco Malfoy (played by Tom Felton in the movies) is turning 35!

The news was confirmed on Twitter by the book series’ author J.K. Rowling, who responded to a fan’s question about how old Draco would be turning as she knew from the books that it was his birthday on June 5.

“Draco turns 35 today. I’m not invited to the party, mainly because I keep telling girls they’re misguided to fancy him,” J.K. wrote.

Rowling previously wrote on Pottermore to warn fans about crushing on a villain.

“I have often had cause to remark on how unnerved I have been by the number of girls who fell for this particular fictional character,” she wrote. “All this has left me in the unenviable position of pouring cold common sense on ardent readers’ daydreams, as I told them, rather severely, that Draco was not concealing a heart of gold under all that sneering and prejudice and that no, he and Harry were not destined to end up best friends.”
